The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has distanced itself from a proposal presented in Parliament by Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei to extend presidential term limit.

In his proposal, the senator stated that the presidential term be extended to 7years of each term for two terms from current 5 years to allow stability and pragmatic development in the country.

However, the UDA party through its Secretary General Cleophas Malala said the senator is on how own and had distanced itself from his crazy proposal to extend president William Ruto’s term limits.

In a statement signed by UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malala, the ruling party noted that the senator’s views were not reflective of that of the Head of State.

” The UDA Party respects and upholds the senator’s personal views but particularly on the referenced subject, those views do not reflect the perspectives of the UDA Party and /or it’s Party Leader, H.E. the president, William Ruto, “read the statement in part.

“The president solemnly swore to respect, uphold and defend the Constitution which is abundantly clear and categorical on the Presidential term limit. ”

Malala further noted that the party was focused on delivering on its promises mindful that it shall in due course submit it’s scorecard for the people to evaluate.

“Respectively, therefore, the term limit debate is superfluous and peripheral, ” added the statement.

Cherargei had presented the proposal to the National Dialogue Committee whereby he argued that the five year limit was insufficient for the state to effectively run and Ruto’s regime to deliver on its promises.
